Love Saves The Day 2016
For most of you, enjoying a lovely May half term is but a distant memory, replaced by the dread that everywhere will now be littered with annoying school kids. Thankfully life isn’t so cruel that us grown ups have to go without, and that’s not even mentioning teachers who get the best of both worlds. For us the pain of seeing all those happy young faces enjoying a week off will be extinguished when Bristol’s Love Saves the Day comes to the rescue on May 28th and 29th.
Last year Love Saves the Day featured headliners Jessie Ware, Azealia Banks and a Groove Armada DJ set not forgetting an insane amount of other amazing artists that tore it up over the weekend. So with that in mind, what can we expect from this years headliners? We don’t know unfortunately, sorry to bait you on like that. As of yet the organizers of Love Saves the Day have yet to release the full line up for the fest but it’s only a matter of time before they drop a bombshell on us.
In the meantime rest safe in the knowledge that the best of Bristol will be in attendance for when the party takes you elsewhere. Arcadia Afterburner, Bump Roller Disco, Cocktail Caravan and Twisted Theatre are just some of the things you can expect to find when you’re out exploring. We can only imagine Bristol’s wonderfully varied array of food and drink will be in full force waiting for you to sample their wares.
As well as the festival itself there’s the after parties, which take place at some of Bristol’s best nightclubs. On Saturday and Sunday night there's after parties at Motion and Marble Factory with an additional party at Lakota & Coroners (just the Saturday). Tickets for these parties are not included with your festival ticket so if you want to be there make sure you to invest in one.
Tickets are on sale now, with the cheapest options for both day and weekend tickets sold out. Individual day tickets start at £32 and weekend tickets start at £60. For those bringing youngsters, under 5s get in free, 5-12 years old are £5.50 per day, and anyone over 12 has to pay full price. Do make sure someone in your group is over 18, as unaccompanied u18s will be refused entry.
Other than that all we can say is keep your eyes peeled for those line up announcements and if you like what you see snap up a ticket, they won’t last long.
